Cushing's is a chronic disease and this pet owner will be facing ongoing monitoring and lifelong medication to keep the symptoms under control. The good news is that pet insurance will pay most of the expense!
I ran across this claim example on the Embrace blog.
There are a couple of lessons to learn from this example.
- Make sure your pet insurance policy has coverage for chronic illnesses beyond the intial year when it is first diagnosed. With some companies, this is optional coverage. Also, make sure their coverage for chronic diseases is adequate.
- Embrace makes coverage for prescription medications optional. I would encourgage you to get this coverage because, as you can see in this example, the ongoing medication for this patient will be significant.
